Re: 11, 12, 13

The only definite here is that the recruitment has been on point. The parts are all correct no matter which way you assemble them

To allow for cotric to remain in centres if he kills it. Not a giant step
There's nothing about Croker's game that would make him a decent winger.
So now you want to drop our captain entirely if cotric shows hes a better centre than him? Youve lost the plot

Re: Joey Leilua has successful surgery, but out for the season

Let me start by saying I honestly believe BJ to be easily top 5 center in the game for years. But if BJ is on the rumoured $800k as a strike centre, which is entirely possible, then some tough decisions need to be made over the next 12 months if Cotric kills it. I havent read 800k anywhere??? Hes 6...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

I've said it before, but i'd sooner play Whitehead in the middle than Tapine. I think Tapine is a good solid middle, but Whitehead moved there and looked like an elite work horse middle, and Tapine finally started to look like the star we thought he got when he got moved to the edges I think Whiteh...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

What if Tapine was our high energy, impact prop with an offload? Then we'd get 80 out of Bateman on an edge every week. And I'm not sure Tapine is at his best when we try to get 80 mins from him. Lui, Sia, Hors, Papa, Sutton & depending how you see them, Tapine or Bateman. Lui, Sia & Sutton are all...

One of my mates said he'd like to see Cotric in the second row eventually, could it be an option for him to move in one and Leilua go back to his normal right centre position?
No sorry. Maybe in the twilight of his career he can luke lewis, but hes still got too much to offer as a back

Re: Joey Leilua has successful surgery, but out for the season

No one is suggesting releasing a NZ rep player, the question is do you renew his contract, as it is about to expire. And in my mind, Croker is no longer suited to the wing - for me the game has evolved to a point where the focal point of a wingers game these days is rucking it out of your own end a...

He is ok but doesn't really fit what we need or how we are playing. If we sign a forward it needs to be a very good one.

Re: Williams or Sezer?

An effective kicking game is very difficult to quantify statistically. Their no real way to measure the nuances between a good kick and a bad one. A 20m grubber kick into touch 10m from the oppostion goal line late in a game is fantastic if its a 5th tackle when you're up by 8 points. If its the 3r...
